Fun Counters for Support Heroes in 7.33C Patch

You can choose these heroes to counter nukers and support heroes in the 7.33c patch for Dota 2.

Many people like to play support heroes to make it hard to farm gold in the lane. Support heroes have a high mana pool that lets them cast multiple spells during battles to deal damage to you and your allies in Dota 2 matches. Picking heroes to counter support heroes can be pivotal to claiming victory in your games.

Playing counter heroes against enemies in support roles can be more fun than playing carry heroes in certain matches. Esports tournaments and competitions that feature Dota 2 require players to be able to counter nukers in their lanes with items and builds to resist being destroyed in team fights.

Dota 2 players like Cr1t and Fly from the esports team Shopify Rebellion have been monumental to their performance in the North American region of the DPC Summer Tour 2023. Shopify Rebellion has secured a 7 win streak in the DPC Summer Tour 2023 and is proceeding to maintain its spot at the top of the standings in the international tournament.

Take a look at these fun counter picks to help you defeat support heroes with ease in the new update for the strategy game.


Anti-Mage chases Lion using Blink to counter the support hero

Anti-Mage is an unmistakable counter against support heroes in Dota 2. He can attack support heroes with physical hits to run them dry of their mana in battles. Each hit from Anti-Mage can burn up to 40 mana per hit, dealing bonus damage to support heroes. Enemies with no mana left in their mana pool will be slowed by 40% by taking damage from the Agility hero, letting Anti-Mage deliver last hits for earning bonus gold in the 7.33c patch.

He can use Blink to teleport up to a distance of 1200, making leaps towards enemy heroes to chase them down in battles. The low cooldown of Blink allows Anti-Mage to escape from enemy encounters without taking lethal amounts of damage from them in Dota 2 matches. He can quickly enter into battles against support heroes like Lion, Shadow Shaman, and Dazzle to drain their mana in his lane. He can land a few hits with his blade to burn plenty of mana from his opponents using the passive ability, Mana Break.

Once the Agility hero closes in on support heroes to fight them, you can use the ability Counterspell to reflect any incoming spells that are targeted at Anti-Mage.

Anti-Mage can activate Manta Style to create 2 illusions that deal plenty of damage to support heroes. The images summoned using Manta Style can also burn the mana of enemy heroes while playing Anti-Mage in the game.

People can deal damage to multiple support heroes around Anti-Mage by purchasing a Battle Fury. The item grants up to 60 attack damage to Anti-Mage and provides Cleave to cut across enemy heroes in battles.

His ulti has a cooldown of 70 seconds that can be reduced by 50 seconds at level 25.
